12 - Debt and Credit Arrangements

At March 31, 2014 the Company had a $75 million credit facility consisting of a $25 million revolving credit line and a $50 million 5-year term loan with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Wells Fargo”). The $25 million credit line is fully available under the credit agreement. The credit facility contains covenants, including covenants relating to liquidity and other financial measurements, and provides for events of default, including failure to pay any interest when due, failure to perform or observe covenants, bankruptcy or insolvency events, and the occurrence of a material adverse effect, and restricts our ability to pay dividends. We are in compliance with all covenants as of March 31, 2014. We have granted Wells Fargo a security interest in substantially all of our assets. We have no other significant credit facilities.

During the first quarter 2013 we borrowed $22 million under the credit facility principally to fund the Grass acquisition and to provide for other working capital needs. We had no additional borrowings..

The credit facility was increased to $75 million in June 2013 and the term was extended to five years. As part of the amended credit facility in June 2013, we converted $31.2 million of short-term revolving debt to a term loan, increasing the term loan from $18.8 million as of March 31, 2013 to $50 million as of June 30, 2013.

During the fourth quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014 additional principal payments of $7.5 million and $5.0 million were made respectively. As a result of these additional principal payments the final payment on this term loan is scheduled to be made on or about June 30, 2017.
